Chick bass players are HOT! Rock it Scat!
Ok well flea is the best bass player in the world today.
oy. Flea's good, but - best in the world? Hmmm. I dunno.
I'm not a big fan of the bickety bickety slap nonsense.
It all sounds like Seinfeld to me.
Paul McCartney (Beatles days) was great. Bruce Thomas from Elvis Costello and the Attractions was/is great.
James Jameson, the guy that played on all the motown hits is my candidate for best ever - but it's a style thing - he was a true pioneer.
Then there's Jaco Pastorius - probably the greatest jazz electric bassist.
Duck Dunn - sick. Played on Aretha tracks and the Philly Soul Stax stuff.
Rocco Prestia - bananas - played with Tower of Power.
In rock, I gotta give it up for Chris Squire and Geddy Lee -
some of the music may have been cheese, but still great players.
There's too many to count.
I really think the chick bass player from the Burning Brides is HOT!
It's all about groove and counterpoint and style.
Oh yeah, and hot chick bass players!!!
